    I ordered from serialio.com

    Part Number: Palm RS-232 Cable- Multi-Connector- 9in
    I must add, I needed a longer female to female regular serial cable to make it longer, because it is very short only 9 inches long, but it works like a charm I now have a 700wx and a 700p fully flash with text talk and wap currently up and going, That I did myself from this post.

    This sames to be a great deal if its a true serial to phone and not usb, I would ask for a pic. First, look at the cable I mentioned and then compare My cable works no question. I bought a few cables all USB folks said will work, I spent countless hours and probably upwards to $200 in cables before I found this one.

    So after the purchase of all these cables I did my research and learned about the TX and RX and how they must be wired in order to work, I even tried making my own to no avail, and I am an Electronic Engineer so go figure this cable works, the only problem I had but seemed to work out in my favor is the cable I bought was too short and the DB9(SERIAL) was male and my PC DB was also male, I had a 6 ft female to female DB9 cable laying around that came in handy.

    If your Pc do not have a serial connection then I would recommend buying this cable along with a regular usb to serial cable from Radio shack or comp USA or maybe even Walmart, it will work the same, in that case this exact cable will work fine for you, because the regular serial to usb comes, female serial to usb, just make sure the regular serial to USB cable is long enought more than six feet, and that should do it.

    If I may I will post a pic of what I have and hopefully that will help you guys locate what your looking for.

    NOW I POST THIS INFORMATION TO ASSIST ONE IN FINDING THE RIGHT CABLE TO DO THE JOB THAT THE ABOVE POST REQUIRES.

    THANKS FOR YOUR QUESTIONS AND i HOPE THIS ANSWERS YOUR QUESTION IF NOT FEEL FREE TO REPLY MAY GOD BLESS .

    Do you know for sure that this will work for a Treo 650, 755P and 700P or W/WX?
    I mean allow me to pick the phone up as a COM Port to use QPST with the phone.
    If yes then I will send you money right now for this item.

    driver

    you do not need any extra driver (besides those built in in the Operative system of your computer, that you are sure they are there becouse if you check you have the port installed in the device manager),................ that is the beauty of the serial port.
